Can eating cannabis edibles cause cancer?

There is currently no evidence that shows that eating cannabis edibles can cause cancer. On the contrary, according to the American Cancer Association, studies so far have shown that cannabinoids can be safe in treating cancer. However, when taken by mouth, such as in baked goods, the THC is absorbed poorly and can take hours to be absorbed. Once it’s absorbed, it’s processed by the liver, which produces a second psychoactive compound (a substance that acts on the brain and changes mood or consciousness) that affects the brain differently than THC.
